Thanks for answering that you disagree with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Specifically. . .
"So then if, while her husband LIVES, she marries ANOTHER man, she will be called an ADULTEROUS; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man." Romans 7:3
If you have been married before, and your first wife "lives" and you did not "put her away" for "fornication" (Matt. 19:9), then you are called an "Adulterer." You can pervert the gospel all you want to accommodate your second marriage or view but when it is all said and done, you simply preach "another" gospel (Gal. 1:6-9)

My mother was divorced for adultery and my father likewise committed adultery to her. They both broke their vow. My mother and father both remarried but when my mother found the true gospel of Jesus Christ, she had to make a decision to either be married to Christ and the truth or be "married to another man and be an adulterous" while her husband still lives. She chose to marry Christ and get out of that "adulterous" relationship. That was a very difficult decision because she really did love her second husband and they were very happy together. But true happiness comes from obeying the commandments of God (Rev. 22:14) and now she is one of the strongest and most blessed among women! I am glad that you were not a preacher then and there that would have influenced her back to sin, because you would want her to remain in adultery and burn forever in hell after the judgment. So you see, this is not merely an "academic" study for me. It hits very close to home.

You wrote:
<<Are you divorce? If not, why are you so concern on divorcement?>>

Was Jesus divorced? Was Paul divorced? Why then were they so concerned about it (Matt 19:1-9; 1 Cor. 7)? Do I have to be in adultery before I can be concerned about adultery? Do I have to be a murderer before I can be concerned with God's law on murder? Repent of your false doctrine and if you have been married before and were put away for adultery or divorced for something unscriptural then you must "remain unmarried" or be reconciled to the one that you were originally "bound" to (1 Cor. 7:10, 11).

What in the world is "DBR" gospel? I guess I am not up to your fancy abbreviations.

For truth,
Acts 13:
8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
9 Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him
10 and said, "O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord?

[Editor's Note: I've re-read Hayuhay's previous notes and find nothing that brother Wallace accuses him of saying. I don't know how he came to this conclusion.]
